(ABC 6 News) - Mayo Clinic will offer three additional opportunities to be vaccinated for COVID-19.

The clinics are open to patients, visitors, and staff if they haven't had a chance to schedule an appointment yet.

They will be held next week on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at various Mayo locations:

         Monday, May 10

The clinic will be held in Phillips Hall on the first floor of the Siebens Building from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

        Wednesday, May 12

The clinic will be held in Phillips Hall on the first floor of the Siebens Building from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

        Thursday, May 13

The clinic will be held in the lower level of the 41st Street Professional Building, 4115 West Frontage Road NW, from 1:30 to 5 p.m.

"We did a pilot last Wednesday, we had a downtown location for walk-in clinics and it was hugely successful and worked out well. So based on that successful pilot, we are now doing what we call walk-in clinics," Dr. Abinash Virk, infectious disease specialist at Mayo Clinic said.

Johnson & Johnson (J&J) and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines will be used at the Phillips Hall clinics, both of which are for adults 18 and older.

J&J and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines will be used at the 41st Street clinic. The J&J is for adults 18 and older and the Pfizer is for 16 and older.

The J&J COVID-19 vaccine is given in one dose. However, the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines are given in two doses as a series. For Moderna, the second dose is given 28 days after the first and 21 days for Pfizer. 

If you receive these COVID-19 vaccines, you will need to schedule your second dose.

Patients, visitors, and staff will be able to schedule their second dose of these COVID-19 vaccines in several ways:

  • Schedule your second dose as you leave the clinic.
  • Call 507-538-4040 to see if a second dose appointment can be scheduled at Mayo Clinic in Rochester.
  • Schedule your vaccination appointment using Patient Online Services.

Nurses administering these COVID-19 vaccines will explain side effects, risks, and benefits.
